View dismissal Kamran Akmal c Gibbs b van der Merwe 37 33 33 3 2 112.12
10.6 57.0 mph, But he is gone now. It was again from over the wicket, turning away from Kamran who went for the cut shot this time. Blink. Gibbs dives to his right at backward point to take a good catch. 69/4
View dismissal Salman Butt c Smith b Steyn 2 6 4 0 0 50.00
1.4 90.0 mph, The bouncer does the trick. Even on this slow pitch. Oh well. It was a banged in short and Salman goes for the pull shot but edges it to mid-on. He gets into a horrible position for that kind of a shot. 6/1
View dismissal Khalid Latif c Steyn b Kallis 7 8 9 1 0 77.77
3.4 86.9 mph, And that penchant to stay on the back foot and try playing to the on side has done him in. It was full length delivery, Latif pressed back, cleared his front foot and tried to slog across the line but lobs it to right of mid-on where Steyn lunges out to collect it 14/2
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez lbw b Langeveldt 1 3 5 0 0 20.00
4.6 81.0 mph, Trapped in front! Just as many of our feedbackers had feared, Hafiz didn't last long. It was full delivery on the off and middle stump line and he played all around it. Poor Balance. Poor shot selection. Gone! 18/3
View dismissal Umar Akmal c Gibbs b Langeveldt 51 43 33 2 4 154.54
16.3 82.5 mph, And he is gone now. Fine knock. 51 from 33 balls. He went for a six over long-on but couldn't clear the fielder. The Umar show is over. It was fun while it lasted. 130/5
View dismissal Shahid Afridi* b Langeveldt 30 24 18 4 1 166.66
16.6 82.7 mph, Clatterr!! Afridi, again, moved outside leg and Langeveldt hurls it full on the off stump line. Afridi tries to glide it to third man but makes no contact. A breezy innings from Afridi. 132/6
Abdul Razzaq not out 11 13 10 0 0 110.00
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq c de Villiers b Langeveldt 3 8 7 0 0 42.85
19.3 82.6 mph, Full delivery and Misbah ends up slicing it straight to AB at long-off. Langeveldt picks up his fourth wicket. He has bowled really well in the end overs here to restrict Pakistan 143/7

View dismissal HH Gibbs c Misbah-ul-Haq b Abdul Razzaq 3 14 9 0 0 33.33
2.4 81.3 mph, It's short in length and Gibbs goes for the pull shot. For a moment you thought he had cleared midwicket and will collect a four. But Misbah, at midwicket, leaped to haul the ball back down! Early strike for Pakistan. 12/1
View dismissal GC Smith* c Shahid Afridi b Abdur Rehman 13 25 13 1 0 100.00
4.4 60.1 mph, Another tame dismissal. Smith tried to force a short delivery over mid-on but ends up pushing tamely to Afridi. What a soft dismissal. 23/2
View dismissal JH Kallis c Umar Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 22 31 21 2 0 104.76
10.5 56.3 mph, What a fab catch from Umar! Kallis shoveled a short-of-length delivery towards long-on and Umar charged ahead and dived full stretch to take a lovely catch 56/3
View dismissal AB de Villiers c †Kamran Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 53 38 41 1 2 129.26
15.4 60.0 mph, AB was hitting superbly down the ground. But this time he goes for the paddle scoop over the keeper's head and fails. He only ended up scooping the topspinner straight up and Kamran turns back to take a simple catch. What a big moment this. 101/5
View dismissal JP Duminy c Khalid Latif b Abdur Rehman 3 4 5 0 0 60.00
12.3 61.3 mph, Caught at deep midwicket! Duminy goes for the hoick to the on side but is beaten in the flight. He hits it straight up .. and Khalid moves in from deep midwicket to take the catch. SA hurtle further into the abyss. 68/4
View dismissal MV Boucher lbw b Saeed Ajmal 12 19 14 1 0 85.71
17.4 72.3 mph, Trapped in front! Bouch tried to work this one to the on side but played all around it. Pakistan inch close to the victory line 113/6

View dismissal J Botha st †Kamran Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 19 6 8 4 0 237.50
19.4 55.6 mph, Done in by the doosra! Ajmal strikes for Pakistan. It broke away from Botha, who went for the slog sweep, and Akmal did the rest. Botha had stretched out his back leg outside the crease. He played well but the big hits came too late for South Africa. 135/7
